Sound quality is really good here. Martin sounds excellent - a full, well-rounded tone is captured.
Keys come through nice and clean.
"Anybody out there who's here tonight" asks Martin after Woods..well, Martin definitely showed up this night. Breezy Cole's Law to open, with Martin taking the final solo rather than Steve, and he pretty much is in form on every piece thereafter. Sad to say, Martin drops a very well known tease in Berm, but I can't for the life of me place it.
Great showing by Chip here as well with rousing solos in Crossroads, Sun Sun Sun, and Anorexia.
Steve plays solidly on everything, but nothing groundbreaking in terms of his ability (average-great as they say). He is definitely on to something in Catalina, but his solo ends too soon to find out where he was going.
Sound: B+/A-. Playing: B+
